“On our wedding day, it felt like Charlene was almost magically always where she needed to be to direct last minute preparations and make sure that everything proceeded completely seamlessly for us and our guests.”
Having seen the overwhelming success of Charlene’s work on my sister’s wedding the year prior, there was no question in our minds that Charlene and Sweetchic Events were who we needed to help plan our wedding... Charlene and her team bring in-depth knowledge and expertise, as well as extensive professional connections with vendors throughout the industry that made planning our wedding so easy. We did not have any strong ideas about what we wanted for our wedding ahead of time and Charlene was able to combine her expertise and our vague descriptions of the wedding we were looking for into a dream-like wedding day that surpassed all of our expectations. Rather than feeling overwhelmed by choices and costs, Charlene made it so we chose from a smaller list of vendors that she trusted and were within our budget.
In the months leading up to the wedding, the streamlined organizational system that Sweetchic used was super helpful to making sure we were on-task and didn’t miss any of the smaller elements that can make all the difference. Living on the east coast, planning a wedding back in our hometown of Chicago would have been unimaginable without such a reliable and trustworthy planner as Charlene and the Sweetchic team... Charlene is laid back and did a wonderful job keeping us all on schedule during planning and the day of without making us feel rushed or stressed out. On our wedding day, it felt like Charlene was almost magically always where she needed to be to direct last minute preparations and make sure that everything proceeded completely seamlessly for us and our guests. Could not recommend more highly for anyone’s special day!

“She and her her assistant took care of everything the day of and we were actually able to enjoy the evening!”
We love Kelsey!
Kelsey and [Sweetchic] were a pleasure to work with! We hired Kelsey as our "day-of coordinator" but she was so much more than that. We actually worked with her for about 3 months leading up to the wedding. She helped us get everything organized, created our day of schedule and took over everything with our other vendors. She and her her assistant took care of everything the day of and we were actually able to enjoy the evening! We would definitely recommend Kelsey to anyone and are hoping we can work with her again in the future for some non-wedding events!

“We worked with Courtney, and she made us feel so comfortable and confident that all of our planning would come together for a smooth day.”
I was really on the fence on whether a wedding coordinator was worth the extra expense, especially once I started realizing how much weddings really do cost! After talking to friends, and meeting with Sweetchic, I decided to go for it, and it was one of the best decisions I made! We worked with Courtney, and she made us feel so comfortable and confident that all of our planning would come together for a smooth day. She came on in the last month or so of planning. She handled all of the vendor communications, supported us on our venue walk through, and kept everyone on point leading up to the wedding. On the day of, it was so nice to have someone else in charge, so I could relax and enjoy my time with family and friends. Courtney and her team kept everything running smoothly throughout the night. I would definitely recommend Sweetchic to anyone looking for a great wedding coordinator!

“[Charlene] made the weeks leading up to the wedding as stress free as possible, and her team was super supportive on the big day. It's clear she is really able to work with any couple, regardless of style or vision, and make them feel special and excited. We love Sweetchic Events!”
We can't say enough good things about Charlene and Sweetchic Events! Starting the wedding planning process was stressful and we quickly realized we needed a planner to help us out...Charlene was friendly, supportive, and laid back... We were excited to have a wedding but overwhelmed by all the details and more or less completely unsure about what we wanted. Charlene made everything easier, giving us a timeline and framework to make sure everything got done.
The best part about Charlene and Sweetchic events is that they totally got our vision, perhaps even before we did. Charlene got to know us well and tailored vendor options to what we were looking for. We didn't feel stressed about making decisions. Charlene gave us a perfect array of options and helped us find the best fit. She was also super helpful in vendor meetings when we didn't know what questions to ask.
Charlene gave us tons of ideas but also embraced when we came up with our own way of doing something that was a little quirky. She made the weeks leading up to the wedding as stress free as possible, and her team was super supportive on the big day. It's clear she is really able to work with any couple, regardless of style or vision, and make them feel special and excited. We love Sweetchic events!
